    ? format static label text

    I just upgraded from AutoCad 2000i to AutoCad 2004.....

    In 2000i I was able to label lines and the output would look like: N57^30'30"W 200.00'

    In 2004 it looks like: N 57^30'30" W 200.00'

    how do I get rid of the space befor the 5 and the space befor the W

    P.S. the ^ symbol is in reality a degree symbol which outputs correctly in Cad

    The simple answer is don't press the space bar.

    What command are you using? Text or MText?

    What font are you using?

    Here's an example of a similar line of text created using both commands and I had no problem.

    Hi,
    yes I can do that also using Mtext or "DT" (text) command..... The deal is when I use automatic labeling, I can go set stuff up to label above or below the line while using the already defined {direction} {distance} variables. However in 2004 the {direction} variable puts out N 50^50'50" W,,,,,, in 2000i the {direction} variable put out N50^50'50"W, no spaces..... How do I edit the variable

    P.S. the ^ symbol is really a degree symbol, I just don't know how to create one here in this reply

    What is automatic labeling? Are you using an add-on to AutoCAD or perhaps a custom lisp routine?
